Every week Kotaku's PC Gaming Lives block shows off some of the finest custom-made enclosures in our Case Mod of the Week segment. But not all computers are pretty. There's mine, for instance. Now show us yours.

Don't let the small size fool you, my Maingear X-Cube is a powerful little machine for what little is packed inside. It's sporting a pair of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 cards, an Intel Core i7 processor and a whopping 6GB of memory, which I should probably upgrade when I get chance. It's also got a Samsung 128GB SSD drive inside for my games (it makes a world of difference), mounted so precariously one could almost say it's hanging off the side of the drive enclosure. Or they could completely say that. Either way.


And then there's the hole. There used to be a DVD burner in there, but I removed it while replacing my power supply a few weeks back and haven't gotten around to putting it back. I've grown to love the hole. It adds character.

I'll be upgrading my case soon with something much... well, you'll see. Maybe I'll even mount the SSD drive.

The point is, not all PCs are pretty, and if I'm not afraid to show off mine on a major gaming website, you shouldn't be afraid to share yours in the comments section.

If we get enough pictures, I'll round them up next week in a magical gallery of picture magic, complete with your text descriptions, edited for clarity and humor. Get to it!
